The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation

tags: history, tech

A solid history of Bell Labs. Interesting, but a bit tedious. It’s astonishing how much stuff was invented there – it puts Xerox PARC to shame, really. The transistor? Wow.

Meticulously researched, but tends to bog down under its own weight in places.
